I talked to Waters dad at Nationals, and yes I think he is going to redshirt this year. That is what he thought was going to happen.
Not sure, maybe to rebuild for a title. I was talking to a Cornell guy and we were talking about the Waters and Garrett (is that the Cornell wrestler?) match and all the shoving and pushing and he joined in and introduced himself. A very nice man and had a nice talk with him about Big 12 wrestling, Ryak Finch, and wrestling in general.
Thanks. It makes more sense that it would be for team competition rather than for Waters development - he seems to be doing just fine on that.
Speaking of Finch man has he not developed.
To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.
